Camila Mendes' Boyfriends: Dated Both In And Out Of Showbiz

She was reported to be dating director, Ian Wallace in 2013. The pair were frequent in the LA party scene which sparked rumors about Ian being her boyfriend. The couple allegedly dated for about three years before separating in 2016.
The relationship left a sour note in her life, so much so that Camila had enough of dating someone from the industry. In an interview with Nylon, she stated that she would never ever couple again with someone from the industry:
"It’s just dating people in the industry is tough. I did for a little bit. It’s hard when that’s your world. You only meet people through work and that can be really tough, because you’re not necessarily meeting people that you’re similar to. It’s just people that you’re with because you’re working on the same project.
She particularly indicated her dislike in actors, stating:
I realize that I don’t think I like actors. Actors are really emotionally complicated. You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”
Sticking to her words, she next dated someone out of the showbiz.
Two years after her breakup with Wallace, she found love again with her childhood friend from Florida, Victor Houston. The pair reunited in New York after several years and started dating each other.

For Camilla, Victor was a breeze of fresh air and someone with whom she could relax and not think about the sets. With Victor having no ties whatsoever with Hollywood, she found solace with him.
The two shared their love openly on Instagram with beautiful pictures in exotic locations(now deleted). However, their love also could not go the distance as Camila dumped Houston without any reasons. Sadly it did not work out between the two which led to their split in June 2018.
She Is Dating Again--New Boyfriend Is Actor
When you spend too much time in the showbiz industry, your life blends in with it too. Possibly it was the same for Mendes. Despite stating her words about not dating actors again, she failed to keep up with those words.
Having dated both from inside and outside the industry, Camila backtracked from her original comments about not dating men from Hollywood.
She is currently in a relationship again and this time with her co-star, Charles Melton aka Reggie from the show Riverdale. They made their relationship official with a romantic Instagram post.

But their relationship hit a hitch at the beginning only. Charles was accused of posting body-shaming tweets on Twitter which surfaced in June 2018. The tweets were made during his teenage years, and had been unearthed by some eagle-eyed Twiterrati.

However, Charles apologized to Camila, who herself was a victim of bulimia after the tweets resurfaced.
Camila, on her part, forgave her newest boyfriend for his naivety. Commenting on the Twitters shaming, she issued a passionate defense of Charles saying;
I know he's not actually a bad person. I think it's a matter of sometimes you tweet things forever ago and they get buried in there and they come out and it sucks. And I don't agree with anything he said or support those statements, but I know that's not who he is
Despite an ugly start, the duo's relationship is now veering in plain waters. Having dated men from both in and out the industry, it feels like Camila has finally found her Mr. Perfect!
